Following fan criticism over Wonder Woman's "girly" makeover during the movie's May release in Japan, a new wave of criticism has surfaced following the release of the film's Japanese language image song.
Wonder Woman's Japanese image song is Nogizaka46's "A Woman Can't Sleep Alone," and its release a few weeks ago have made some fans unhappy due to how the track betrays Wonder Woman's strong independent personality.
Here are some of the comments made by fans in response to Wonder Woman's Japanese image song:
“This is Wonder Woman we’re talking about. She should have a stronger-sounding song.”
“If you’re going to choose an image song for Wonder Woman, shouldn’t it be a powerful song about the beauty of life?”
“You’re saying Wonder Woman can’t sleep alone? Please, don’t put this image song in the Japanese-subtitled theatrical release.”
“As someone who likes both Nogizaka46 and American comics, I’m really disappointed by the title and lyrics.”
“The song’s guitar and strings are a good fit for Wonder Woman, so I really wish Akimoto had given it a proper title and lyrics.”
